La Belle Noiseuse (The Beautiful Troublemaker)
(1991, 3 hr., 58 min., Not Rated. French with English subtitles) 
Directed by Jacques Rivette

Loosely based on Honoré de Balzac‘s short story Le Chef-d’oeuvre inconnu (The Unknown Masterpiece), Rivette’s film explores fictional artist Frenhofer’s creative rebirth with the arrival of a new muse and the subsequent disruption for everyone involved. Considered a masterpiece of French New Wave cinema, La Belle Noiseuse is frequently listed as one of the best films ever made about art and artists.

Due to the length of the film, there is an earlier start time and no additional pre-screening or post-screening program.
